Chloé’s artistic journey is the result of weaving together her experience in dramatic arts with her beauty-consulting background. Finding the truth behind our self-carved masks is a recurrent conceptual subject latent beneath her painting practice. Whether that truth is concealed by a fake eyelash or a fake smile, a painted portrait for Chloé is an opportunity to reveal the veiled emotional magma underneath an impersonal facade.
As a witness of the lengths we as a social group go to in order to manipulate the way we artificially present ourselves to the world, altering the way we act around others, Chloé found in her painting practice a way to cut through the superficial and expose the non-verbal, the unfiltered, the human.
Chloé finds inspiration in Jenny Saville’s exuberant pictorial renditions of overflowing figures, expressive in their dramatic silence, brazenly vulnerable, painterly blemished. Fatigued from the world’s obsession to remove scars and iron out emotional wrinkles, Chloé now asks for the truth.
